Orlando tourist-attraction worker dies in fall from 450-foot ride

A 21-year-old Florida amusement-park worker plummeted to his death Monday while performing a routine safety check on what’s billed as the world’s tallest swing ride.

Jacob David Kaminsky was about halfway up the 450-foot StarFlyer ride at ICON Park in Orlando when he fell to the bottom platform, news station WKMG reported.

He was rushed to Orlando Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, the outlet reported.

“It’s a shock. {We are] saddened by it. Any time there is an injury or something of this nature, it’s extremely sad,” said John Stine, ICON’s director of sales and marketing, to the outlet.

Stine said the ride will be closed as authorities investigate the fatal incident.
